Delaware River Report / Conditions August 8, 2018

Aug 08, 2018 Comments Off by

We did get some rain overnight that bumped the flows slightly.  The river flows are dropping back already this morning.  The release from Cannonsville is 928 cfs.  With Downsville at 678 cfs there is a lot of cold water in the system right now.  The lower West has some color in this morning but should clear as the runoff drops.  We may see a bit more rain today but the total accumulation should be negligible at .17″.  The river looks good for streamer fishing this morning and should clear enough for fish to rise by the afternoon.  It should be a little cooler today with an air temp around 83 degrees and winds from the south 5 – 10 mph.  Sulphurs, isonychias, and olives.  We have seen a few more caddis lately.  We have not seen a good number of flying ants yet but it’s a good idea to start carrying a few imitations.  The rest of the week looks great with some clouds and light showers but no significant amount of rainfall.
